Two Jonstown Compendium Titles make Pookie's Christmas List

Jonstown Compendium titles selected by Pookie for Christmas Dozen 2020

Prolific reviewer Pookie's annual (post-)Christmas Dozen list - "what you should purchase yourself to read and play in the months to come" - recommends two works from our Jonstown Compendium community content program at DriveThruRPG. This is a testament to the depth and quality of what creators are doing here for gaming in the world of Glorantha!

Reviews from R'lyeh says Andrew Logan Montgomery's Six Seasons in Sartar is "a fantastic introduction to a fantastic world, one of the first titles a prospective Game Master of RuneQuest should purchase from the Jonstown Compendium."

And says Shawn and Peggy Carpenter's Valley of Plenty is "is another great introduction to roleplaying in Glorantha, which takes both players and their characters step-by-step into the setting, its mythology, and drama."
